Since 2004, the Minnesota Heart Gallery has taken professional photos of over 300 youth who are waiting for permanent families. The photo shoots are extraordinary experiences for the volunteer professional photographers and for the young people . . . who can now see themselves in a way they’ve never seen themselves before.

Minnesota Heart Gallery is not the official photo listing of Minnesota’s waiting kids. Visit www.mnadopt.org/waiting-kids/ for the official state website and listing, which is a program of the Minnesota Department of Human Services and run by MN ADOPT (and not affiliated with Ampersand Families or the Minnesota Heart Gallery).

Minnesota Heart Gallery continues to provide about 100+ kids a year with professional recruitment photos. This year we are working on a new website that will highlight these images, while also featuring a behind-the-scenes look at this unique professional photo shoot experience for Minnesota’s waiting youth.
